Enter to win one of TEN copies of The Lie Tree


We're so excited to present this giveaway for Frances Hardinge's newest novel, The Lie Tree, a Macmillan publication. It is a deliciously creepy novel from Frances, who you might know as the award-winning author of Cuckoo Song and Fly by Night


About the book

The Lie Tree is the seventh book published by Frances Hardinge. The main character, Faith, is a young girl whose father is found dead under mysterious circumstances. As she is searching through his belongings for clues as to his demise, she discovers a strange tree. The tree only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. The fruit of the tree, when eaten, will deliver a hidden truth to the person who consumes it. The bigger the lie, the more people who believe it, the bigger the truth that is uncovered.

About the author

Frances Hardinge has had what some would call an enchanted life. Growing up in a huge old house, she was inspired to write strange stories from an early age. She studied English at Oxford University, after which she landed a job at a software company. It took the persistent bullying from a friend to finally convince Frances to send her work to a publisher. Macmillan made her an immediate offer! The book, Fly by Night went on to become Frances' first children's novel and won the Branford Boase First Novel Award.
